Inspired by the theme of ‘The 80s’, the programme included 8 different instrumental ensembles and 3 choirs, demonstrating the enthusiasm and musical talent of children in Lower Prep to  Form 2 (Years 3 to 6).

The concert began with the choirs singing 80s hits, Take On Me (Waaktaar, Furuholmne and Harket), The Eye of the Tiger (Sullivan and Peterik) and two songs by Labi Siffre - who was educated at St Benedict’s in the 50s and 60s – It Must Be Love and Something Inside So Strong
